National Sewing Month - Challenge #3

Okay, you should be wrapping up those entries for NSM Challenge #2, so it's time for Challenge #3!  We fell in love with the cute sewing boxes made from old tins that were featured in the latest issue of Sew News:

Aren't they adorable?  We'd love to see what you can come up with, so dig out those empty tins and get started!

Now the important stuff - The Rules:

1. Make a sewing kit out of an old tin (or even a cute box). It MUST be a new item made specifically for this contest.

2. Take a picture of your finished project and email the photo to by Friday, September 28th at 5 pm Eastern time.

3. The projects will be voted on by Arrow staff, and the winner will be announced here on the blog on Monday, Oct 1st.
The winner will receive an awesome Velocity V50 iron by Reliable!

Creativity counts!! Don't be afraid to go for it! Remember, we'll be having more challenges throughout the month. For a little added incentive, everyone that enters all of our challenges during the month will be entered into a drawing for a Suzi storage cabinet (accessories not included)! Woohoo!
Good luck everyone! Get to work on those entries!


  1. sounds like a fun contest... alas, I never have enough time on these... a week just does not allow enough time in my schedule to get one done... but enjoy seeing what everyone else who's schedule is less crowded comes up with...thanks

  2. Oh this is great!!!! I can't wait to do this one. Going to do some rearranging of a schedule. I so need that iron! Thanks!

  3. I sew need the iron. Mine is not happy. Will get it done this weekend!

  4. I don't have any old tins/boxes lying around the house. So, I'm hoping that buying a simple box to use will work.

  5. I've got mine sent in. This was an awesome challenge! Thanks so much for inspiring me. These challenges have been lotsa fun! Hope to see more fun projects in the future! :)
